There is no populate.sql for metrics last I checked.

Consider a SMTP server. It has clients connect and send emails through 
it. I would like to be able (through a web interface) to see which 
clients are currently connected to it, and how many messages they each 
have sent through (e.g. user from foo.example.com port 67349 has just 
sent 10000 messages, perhaps he's a spammer.) Or to be able to see who 
is logged in from where to a PB server and how many method calls each 
perspective has sent, etc..
